Marisa Tomei is Aunt May in new Spiderman

Marisa TomeiLate Wednesday afternoon, Sony announced that they have found their new Aunt May in Marisa Tomei.

The 50-year-old actress will be the third woman to portray Aunt May in a live-action film, following Rosemary Harris and Sally Field. This marks the second time Sony has decided to reboot the franchise. 

Superhero movies are a departure from Marisa’s traditional roles in dramas like The Wrestler or comedies like My Cousin Vinny, which earned her a 1993 Oscar for Best Actress in a Supporting Role.

Marisa will join British actor Tom Holland, who was recently cast in the role of Spider-Man/Peter Parker. Tom is expected to make his super-debut in Captain America: Civil War, due out May 6, 2016.

Marisa will likely make her Marvel cinematic universe debut in the untitled Spider-Man reboot, due in theaters July 28, 2017.

Marisa can next be seen in the Amy Schumer comedy Trainwreck, releasing July 17. ~Greg Chisholm

    Great actress and at 50, she’s not too young to play someone with a teenage nephew.
